I offer Core Process Psychotherapy, the original mindfulness-based psychotherapy in the UK.
There is a growing interest in mindfulness and evidence base for its effectiveness in helping alleviate suffering. Mindfulness encourages us to be curious about how we are right now. By focusing on arising thoughts and body sensations, we can notice that they are continually changing and how we are affected by our habitual patterns of behaviour. Core Process Psychotherapy integrates Buddhist psychology with Western psychotherapeutic models. It uses a range of Western techniques, in conjunction with mindfulness, to provide the flexibility needed to meet, understand and work with each unique client.
A fundamental understanding in Core Process Psychotherapy is that most of our difficulties arose in relationship. To counter this I offer a confidential, compassionate, non-judgemental therapeutic relationship. This provides the support needed to move towards awareness and acceptance of our behaviours or to unravel those that no longer serve us well. The result can be greater ease in ourselves and in our relationships with others.
Our work can be short term counselling providing support around a specific issue or more open ended depending on your needs.
